Which bagel reigns supreme in Montreal — St-Viateur or Fairmount? We took to the streets to find out.
Fairmount Bagel, founded in 1919 when its original location opened on The Main, was the first bagel shop in Montreal and has bragging rights of being the first bagel in space.
St-Viateur Bagel, with several locations in the city and celebrating its 60th anniversary this weekend, is in the opinion of many the home of the quintessential Montreal-style bagel.
Tastes were divided, but St-Viateur came out on top.
T’Cha Dunlevy (Team St-Viateur) and Jason Magder (Team Fairmount) explain below why their favourite bagel shop is the best in Montreal.
